Here we go!! Paul's sisters Carli and Jayme invited us to run as a team in the Chicago Marathon in 2022. As some of you may know, Paul and Carli have Crohn's Disease and its a constant presence in their day to day life. It's a mysterious disease, and one that could use support and funds to help out everyone suffering from it. All of us on the team are looking to raise in total $8,000.00! Let's make it happen and we'll cross the finish line on October 9th. If we get 10K I'll sprint my (Natalia) ass the last two miles to wipe Paul out.
I have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. On October 9th, 2022 I will run in the Chicago Marathon. This will be a big undertaking, but it will all be worth it because your donations will not only motivate me to the finish, but they will help us get closer to the cure. Won’t you please consider a donation today?
About Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
Known collectively as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis affects almost 1 in 100 people. They are painful, medically incurable diseases that attack the digestive system. Crohn's disease may attack anywhere along the digestive tract, while ulcerative colitis inflames only the large intestine (colon). Symptoms may include abdominal pain, persistent diarrhea, rectal bleeding, fever, and weight loss. Many patients require numerous hospitalizations and surgery. Most people develop the diseases between the ages of 15 and 35; however the incidence is increasing in children.
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation is the largest non-profit, voluntary, health organization dedicated to finding cures for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). The Foundation’s mission is to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults who are affected by these diseases. The Foundation works to fulfill its mission by funding research; providing educational resources for patients and their families, medical professionals, and the public; and furnishing supportive services for those afflicted with IBD.
